Abstract

Possibility of negative muon transfer from helium muonide Heμ+ to T /or D/ through collisional excitation after muon catalyzed fusion has been pointed out. The transfer process depends on the efficiency of collisional excitation of Heμ+ in the medium of tritium or deuterium. It is argued that tritium has larger nuclear stopping power and better excitation efficiency than deuterium. This effect is in the same direction as the tritium concentration dependence of muon loss probability in recent experimental work.
